    One of Leonardo Dicaprio's best performances! Sure, he wasn't the best actor back in the 1990's, but this proves that he had the potential to really act. Every actor, along Johnny Depp, was great in this, making it one of the best dramas of the decade!

    I went into this movie expecting it to be very boring, but it's a lot of fun. Johnny Depp is outstanding this complicated role. An even more outstanding performance is given by Leonardo Dicaprio. It didn't know better I would have actually thought he is like that. This movie is so heartfelt and heartbreaking that at some points the person you root for changes due to their actions. And another great thing about this film is actions have consequences which a lot of movies over look. I totally recommend this movie for any film fans looking for something to make them tear up and provide a story of love and pain.

    Warm-hearted coming-of-age film with wonderful performances by DiCaprio, Depp and Lewis. One of the best movies of the 1990s.

    Summary: Trapped in a rural town, Gilbert's responsibilities are eating away at him. At the top of the list are caring for his obese, homebound mother and his dependent, younger brother with a mental disability. Takeaways: An unfortunate tale about a teenager living a stressful adult life. The build up of the small town gossip and demanding homelife are stressful for Gilbert and the viewer alike. Besides that, young Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio are fabulous.

    Masterful acting performance with a slow-burn style. Literally coming-to-age slice-of-life literature work.

    I liked it. It's a beautiful, artistic story.... soft and slow Americana. I was not blown away by Johnny Depp's acting nor all of the dialogue but was impressed with everything else and it is leagues ahead of the super hero films being turned out relentlessly these days. Recommend!

    Terrific film. Probably Johnny Depp's best performance and amazing acting from Leonardo DiCaprio as well. It's a very sad movie, but one definitely worth watching.

    One of the best movies I've ever seen. Great plot - great cast. Leonardo and Johnny are doing a fantastic acting job in this film.

    It's a good enough movie - not one you'll want to watch multiple times though.
